I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend (and paid tribute to our soldiers past and present).  I worked sun/mon of it.  It wasn't too bad.  But this week...well, I just realized it's only been 2 regular days so far.  It feels like more.  Today I was standing next to a nurse, we were both charting, and I looked at her and asked if it was normal to get a headache every single day from work.  (She said if I find a way to get rid of it, let her know cause she's had one for years.)  And that's all I can think about right now is my splitting headache.  I was trying to figure out if it was stress?  Fatigue?  And then I popped some gum in my mouth and yee-ouch!  My jaw is sore.  I've been clenching without knowing it again.  Stress for the win!  So work is done for the day, my head is killing me, and I thought, what can I do to relax?  So I thought I would blog on my "fantastic blog" about things that are fantastic :)
  • This weather for one thing.  Absolutely beautiful.  This spring has spoiled me beyond my hopes and dreams, and I like being spoiled.
  • The veiw out my window as I sit here in the loft and my curtains shift with the breeze, the fresh air filtering in and the birds chirping away.
  • It's date night, so I just have to wait one more hour and Hubs will be home and we will run out on another adventure.
  • Two weddings this weekend.  And since I am married now that means two things.  One, I have a new appreciation for weddings and how wonderful they are.  And two, here's two more times that I get to fully bask in the light of marriage when all the singles have to try and catch that darn bouquet.
  • We went and saw Prince of Persia over the weekend and I ate an ENTIRE popcorn, all by myself, and loved every minute of it.
  • I have the best husband.  He watched SATC with me in preparation for his prior agreement to see SATC2 with me sometime!
Looks like Malachi is home early!  Later friends :)

I get headaches a lot from work too, but I don't think it's from stress. Actually, they behave a little more like migranes which makes me mad because I never used to get even little headaches and now I just have to go to bed it's so bad.

On a happier note, I am glad you are counting your blessings! I didn't realize you had a loft! That's pretty darn cool. And I'm proud that you can eat a whole popcorn but what size? If it was a kid size one I am not impressed! lol

I have had major TMJ pain since my second year of medical school - almost debilitating. I went to see a dentist and was fitted for a mouth guard and it was a HUGE improvement.

Happy to hear about your happiness!

Oh I hope you don't have migraines! I had been going to sleep to find some form of relief from the headache too. However, I think in all actuality, it ended up being from my neck with that lovely change in barometric pressure. I'm such an old lady.

Mir - I'm really glad that you found some relief from your TMJ!

And the popcorn was a small :( but an ADULT small, which I usually only eat 1/3 of. They are still so big!
